Get to Know Your Telehealth Benefits
Telehealth, or virtual care, allows you to interact with a doctor, nurse or therapist by phone or video. You don’t even have to leave the comfort and safety of your home for many healthcare services.
Many people started using telehealth services during the coronavirus outbreak to help limit possible exposure and spread.
Use your telehealth benefit for non-emergency care from in-network providers. All you need is your home phone, or use your laptop, tablet or smartphone to connect for a video call.
- Virtual Visits with a Doctor: Keep your scheduled appointments without the risk of waiting rooms and office contact.
